Neighborhood Services Coordinator, Karen Foley, works closely with all City departments to help deliver City services to citizens and neighborhoods via neighborhood groups. She also helps organize new groups and provides technical support and training to neighborhood organizations. She also facilitates #BGGovToGo, the City of Bowling Green's neighborhood outreach initiative that brings City information and resources out to neighborhoods and special events across the community.
What is a Neighborhood Organization?
- Bringing people together,
- Defined by a geographic boundary, and
- Concerned with issues that affect the neighborhood/area.
These organizations work to bring residents together to increase the livability of Bowling Green’s neighborhoods. Neighborhood organizations can help citizens have their voices heard in the public policy debates that take place in the community. They often are formed by citizens acting on their own but sometimes at the suggestion of city government. Many cities view neighborhood organizations as a means of solving problems at the grassroots level, providing a vital link to City Hall, and providing an environment for the development of future civic leaders.
What does a Neighborhood Organization do?
Each neighborhood has its own unique personality. Projects are as diverse as the neighborhoods within the city, and groups meet as frequently (or infrequently) as it suits them. Check the Calendar of Events or call 270-393-3674 for upcoming meetings in your neighborhood. If your neighborhood doesn't have one, consider starting one.
